Babu G – Next Station: Lansdowne LP – Part 1 (Featured Toronto LP)

A lot of rap is becoming extremely redundant and repetitive, artists trying to figure out new and exciting ways of wording the exact same thing; why they are the best, how many women they have running in and out their hotel, what cars they have rented and other things along the same line. What rap has been missing is artists that genuinely have a story to tell, a story of what they have been through or how they have overcome their struggle, basically that raw real lyricism that is almost invisible on a mainstream level. This artist is delivering that real raw meaningful lyricism that the game has been lacking. Coming out of Toronto, rapper Babu G is hitting the streets with a brand new  quality project, “Next Station: Lansdowne LP – Part 1“. Babu G has been in the studio writing a lot and laying down a lot of tracks, with that being said he has chosen to make this a two part project, releasing the first part now, giving the audience time to take in this batch of music before he drops the next bomb.


The 13 track tape offers 38 minutes of solid work, every track hitting hard, meaningful lyrics in all of them, no random filler tracks. It has an extremely cool laid back vibe to it, no real club banger joints, more so that urban on the subway rocking out styled tracks. The tape features a handful of different producers, including Babu G himself. The sick production team includes, Stokely who is responsible for 3 tracks, Toronto producer BeatBusta, The Cratez, K-Boogie and Steptone. The tape is extremely emotional due to many of the tracks going deep into the mind of Babu G, making you feel what Babu G is explaining. It is a dope tape and should be taken in as soon as possible. In addition, look out for part 2 of this project which will be hitting the streets soon. Check it out below.





Adrian Duncan – Intentions (Featured Toronto Audio)

This right here is that, what’s the game’s been missing ever so needed, headache removal music. Coming out of Toronto, this 21 year old freshman artist is moving like a vet, with an extremely dope, extremely clean, high quality sound. Adrian Duncan is fairly new on the scene with only 2 songs on SoundCloud, but don’t let that lack of quantity discourage you, this guy has some serious potential, dropping extremely quality lyrics over extremely soulful and relaxing beats; if you’re into this you might compare him to LA rapper Blu. Well, without further ado, let us introduce Adrian’s new track, “Intentions“. This track has crazy good vibes to it, lyrically, he is kicking a sort of story rap, depicting the plight of every young dude caught between two females trying to figure out what he wants and what he needs, to quote a dope line in the hook that summarizes the whole track, “I want to feel your lust, I need to feel her love“. The Canei Finch beat is on point; the New York producer did his thing, making this super cool instrumental perfect for Adrian.


Adrian Duncan is just teasing the game right now, by slowing introducing himself, initially dropping his first single, “Floetry (Interlude)” almost 2 months ago on SoundCloud, now dropping this new track. Both tracks are set to be a part of his upcoming project, “Tape Quality“. The tape features a number of soulful vibe tracks, not much different from this one, it also features a different production team on each track. To get some more information on this extremely talented artist, check out an interview he conducted with Matik MagCheck out “Intentions” below and be sure to check out more from Adrian Duncan.

Lunchbox – Remember Me (Featured Toronto Video)

One thing that cannot be said about Toronto is that it lacks raw talent. There have been several artists that have stepped forward to showcase their skills, some are trash, some aren’t bad and there are a handful that really have something, this guy right here definitely has something to bring to the table.  Toronto rapper Lunchbox has been making some decent strides with his music recently, releasing his track, “Remember Me” and accompanying it with a visual. The track was originally released on SoundCloud early July, and then shortly after made its way onto iTunes. It is a solid track, featuring a solid upbeat instrumental produced by Young Reck Dynasty. The beat is nothing however without Lunchbox laceing it with a solid and extremely catchy hook, along with quality verses. Shorty after releasing an audio, the video was submitted to Worldstar, the video has blown up since then, reaching over 2 million views since its release. The video is decent, displaying Lunchbox and his team just having an overall good time,riding around the GTA and spitting his bars. The video brings forth the same energy that that was laid out on the track, making the pair mesh together well, allowing you to enjoy the whole project. This is an all together dope project and by no means should be taken lightly. Check out this music video below and be sure to be on the lookout for more fire tracks and videos from Lunchbox.

Blaze The Fireman – O.M.B. (On My Bullsh*T) [Featured Toronto Song]

Everyone knows that when you hop on a track that’s not your own you have to go above and beyond what is generally expected, you can’t bring weak bars, or a terrible flow to the table. This Toronto artist understands that and proves worthy of hopping on this beat. Blaze The Fireman is back, hitting the streets with some new dope, “O.M.B. (On My Bullsh*t)” was released a few days ago, and putting it simply, it’s fire. He hops on T.I’s track, “Project Steps”, which is you’ve already heard it you would know that this track is a heavy hitter. The original track was produced by producer Mars of the American musical ensemble 1500 or Nothin. It is a slower track, but still bangs like a typical T.I trap record. Blaze The Fireman does not fail to execute the track, delivering quality lyrics throughout the whole track, letting you know he feels good to be back on road. This dude is fire, and should definitely not be slept on; check out his track below and be sure to keep an eye out for more fire from Blaze The Fireman.





KO – Top Dog (Featured Toronto Video)

Falls coming up but there is still no shortage of heat coming out of Toronto, artists dropping fire track after fire track, Toronto rapper KO hit the streets with a super dope new track and video to remind people that he is not to be counted out. Back with his new track, “Top Dog“, KO really lives up to his name, by knocking out this track, allowing people of different tastes to mess with it. The track plays host to a slower, smoother but banging instrumental produced by Harlem producer, V Don. The instrumental was originally produced for Harlem rapper, Black Rob’s track “Nothing”. It is fair to say that KO’s version of this track goes way harder than the original being as he hits you with serious lyrics, an extremely dope flow and adds a dope and catchy hook. The M Works shot and directed video adds an edge to the already dope project. It features him smoking up, drinking and just spitting the lyrics to his track.

Ruff Gewel – Off The Leash (Featured GTA Video)

In a predominately male dominated industry, female’s trying to break into the industry have an uphill battle to create waves or to even be recognized. This 22 year old female artist coming out of the GTA is not only proving that female’s can hold their own, but can dominate this game. Ruff Gewel hit the streets not too long ago with a music video for her fire track, “Off The Leash“. The actual track came out 3 months ago, and it’s been stirring things up, she brings some quality bars, very few filler lyrics, and delivered with a solid flow. Her lyrical capabilities mirror that of another female artist, Snow Tha Product, with the same kind of rapid bar after bar delivery. She drops her bars over a JeeJuh Productions produced beat; a solid beat that she rides to perfection. The video is pretty good as well, shot by BrownGuyMadeIt, it was filmed in a forest, showing the simplicity allowing you to focus on the crazy bars she is dropping. All in all this is a dope project, check out her music video below and be sure to check out more tracks from Ruff Gewel.

Robin Banks Interview with

We’ve been saying it quite a lot, but it needs to be said again; there’s a lot of artists out there in the 6, some just don’t measure up, some need to take a back seat with this whole music thing, however there are a number of artists that have surpassed the average local rapper, and this man right here, Mr. TT himself is one of those artists. Robin Banks has been putting in some serious work, dropping fire after fire, with videos to match. After putting on a serious music campaign and coining the phrase ‘TT’ (stands for Too Turnt), he got some recognition from the 6 God himself, after he posted, “TT right now. Too much. Too much.” on Instagram.


We had a chance to discuss up with Robin Banks and ask him a few questions to help us and his fans get a better insight into what drives him and what he’s like outside of his music. Without any further hesitation, is pleased to bring you this exclusive interview with one of Toronto’s most popping artists, Robin Banks.


Lets get straight into it. Tell us a little bit about yourself?

I’m a rapper from the Jane and Finch Community in Toronto, Ontario. I’m from a troubled neighbourhood that’s known for drugs and violence. I tried doing things to get out of it by playing basketball and soccer, but then figured out that music was my #1 talent, so from then I went from writing my rhymes to recording them.

What inspired you to pursue a career in music?

What inspired me to pursue this career in music was the struggle I’ve been through and seen my people go through. But what motivates me more is the block I’m from; you don’t get many opportunities and chances because everybody doubts a “Hood Nigga”. So for that reason I go hard in the studio everyday.

Do you feel you have a specific sound and how have your roots, (like where you were raised, your experiences, etc.) influenced your style?

I don’t think I have a specific sound but I do think my sound is different in comparison to other rappers in my city. My influence on my music is really the turn ups and the fun we have. Everybody in this city wants to make hood music and trap music, looking all serious and shit, not saying there’s anything wrong with that, I would just rather show how we turn up cause everybody knows where I’m from and how we get down.

What makes you stand out from other Toronto rappers? 

I think what makes me stand out is that I always have a catchy hook, no matter if the single is trap or turn up one thing I make sure is that my hook is always on point because I feel like the hook is what grabs peoples attention.

Your tracks and video’s have been getting a lot of attention recently, one getting co-signed by Drake on Instagram. How has the attention affected you, and your music?

I haven’t been affected by the attention in any way when it comes to my personality or ego because this is what I was expecting but it did affect my music by helping me be able to switch up my style and sounds.

The Entertainment. What can we expect from this project? When can we expect it to hit the streets?

The Entertainment will have all different kinds of sounds for all different kinds of people. I don’t have an exact date for the release of the tape but I’m trying  get it out real soon.

What’s next for Robin Banks?

Once I get this mixtape out I’m trying to line up a lot more shows for myself.

Anything else you want to let people know? Any Shout Outs?

S/O to my brothers UTM IMG SOS 3Letters.. The whole North Side campaign. Look out for my bros Richie Stacks and Big Bills they got some heat coming out too! This is just a start for us I was just warming up haha.

Hitting you with a catchy hook and solid verses that keep you bopping your head. The video isn’t as action packed as the previous ones, however it is still extremely artistic; featuring scenes from all of the precious video’s with additional clips from random shows, that come together to make one A1 music video.
